Is this the most exciting way of learning new english words?
I have this new technique of learning english words.
here it goes:
when I see a new english movie I write the meaning of the name of the movie on a piece of paper. such as insidious (name of the movie) means sneaking and legion means abundant.
Do you guys like this way of learning new words?
What amendments shall I embed into my technique? Any suggestions?
That is good idea. Isn't it better to type what the characters are talking in the movie. That way more learning can occur.
I learn new words from reading. I've spoken and written English all my life and I still come across new words almost every day. When I do, I look them up in a dictionary, learn the meaning and usage, and when possible work them into my conversations. I've also learned about various words in other dialects the same way. One novel was set in New Orleans and the main character used many Cajun words. I learned a lot from that one. Sorry, I don't remember the title.
